After a couple of washed out events, we're back at Astwood for this event, which starts at 7.00pm.  Entry is £3.00 (members) and £5.00 (non-members).

All are welcome: make sure you turn up in time to sign on. You'll need a mechanically sound bike and a bike helmet. We recommend the use of a rear light. You need to be 12 or over to ride time trials; if you are over 12 but under 18 you will need permission from a parent or guardian to take part (download a permission form in pdf format and in Word format). The course has a route description and a risk assessment. Make sure you have familiarised yourself with the course, and remember that time trials are held on open roads - take care and be observant of other road users!

Download the latest Course Description and Risk Assessment (pdf) - please note we will be using the version of the course starting and finishing in Astwood village itself (meeting point near the junction of Astwood High St and the A422) - apart from this, the course description and risk assessment are correct.

For riders new to time trialling, here's a brief introduction to time trials.  

Results 

 

A nice evening saw a good turnout of riders. I'm told several set new personal bests for the course. Barry took the win on his road bike.

Handicap Placings

A good turnout on what proved to be a fast evening. 20 starters (including 6 1st Claim NBRC) returned 13 Personal Best times for the course with other good rides close to best times.

Three riders with identical Handicap Times proves that handicapping levels the playing field for riders who perform well!
